1: Now Sarai, Abram's wife, had given him no children; and she had a servant, a woman of Egypt whose name was Hagar. 2: And Sarai said to Abram, See, the Lord has not let me have children; go in to my servant, for I may get a family through her. And Abram did as Sarai said. 3: So after Abram had been living for ten years in the land of Canaan, Sarai took Hagar, her Egyptian servant, and gave her to Abram for his wife. 4: And he went in to Hagar and she became with child, and when she saw that she was with child, she no longer had any respect for her master's wife. 5: And Sarai said to Abram, May my wrong be on you: I gave you my servant for your wife and when she saw that she was with child, she no longer had any respect for me: may the Lord be judge between you and me. 6: And Abram said, The woman is in your power; do with her whatever seems good to you. And Sarai was cruel to her, so that she went running away from her. 7: And an angel of the Lord came to her by a fountain of water in the waste land, by the fountain on the way to Shur. 8: And he said, Hagar, Sarai's servant, where have you come from and where are you going? And she said, I am running away from Sarai, my master's wife. 9: And the angel said to her, Go back, and put yourself under her authority. 10: And the angel of the Lord said, Your seed will be greatly increased so that it may not be numbered. 11: And the angel of the Lord said, See, you are with child and will give birth to a son, to whom you will give the name Ishmael, because the ears of the Lord were open to your sorrow. 12: And he will be like a mountain ass among men; his hand will be against every man and every man's hand against him, and he will keep his place against all his brothers. 13: And to the Lord who was talking with her she gave this name, You are a God who is seen; for she said, Have I not even here in the waste land had a vision of God and am still living? 14: So that fountain was named, Fountain of Life and Vision: it is between Kadesh and Bered. 15: And Hagar gave birth to a child, the son of Abram, to whom Abram gave the name of Ishmael. 16: Abram was eighty-six years old when Hagar gave birth to Ishmael.
